Subject Re: Handling Large data in a method call
Date Wed, 06 May 2009 05:04:31 GMT
XMLBeans serializes everything in-memory, so that's likely the cause of 
your problems. Depending on your schema you may find either ADB or JiBX 
a better option. Both ADB and JiBX provide pretty good support for 
complex type extension, though JiBX doesn't support runtime typing (with 
xsi:type in instance documents).

Complex type restriction is pretty much a silly idea when used with data 
binding (like subclassing, but you're taking stuff away rather than 
adding it in). If you need to have the complex type restriction 
reflected in your data classes I think you're out of luck with both ADB 
and JiBX - but at least in the case of JiBX the base type is just used 
instead, so as long as you only set the values which are allowed by the 
restriction you're ok. To use JiBX you'd need to generate your data 
model from the schemas as a separate step, before running WSDL2Java:

Otherwise, you can try JAXB. I haven't investigated the JAXB support in 
Axis2 recently, but I'd hope it works directly with the input/output 
stream without building an in-memory representation.
